states. a poll has president obama up five points in that state and two new nbc news polls have the president leading by six points in ohio and two in florida. the polls in these key states relatively stable over the last few weeks. it seems there's little persuading left to do. both sides agree on what is going to decide the campaign. that's turnout. they touted his party's get out to vote. >> we are far ahead of where we were in 2008. we are going to be -- you know, our ground game is better than their ground game. we are going to do more voter contacts this year than all of 2008 and all of 2004 combined. we have an army on the ground. >> democrats for their part have invested in a robust, cutting edge program in swing states. joe biden said at a meeting on thursday is what's going to put president obama over the top. >> hey, you know, you know why we're going to win? because of you all. no, i'm serious. i generally mean it. you know, the thing is -- the difference in this election, once again is the ground game. because of you and iowa, ohio, wisconsin, colorado, north caroli
earthquake struck in myanmar last night. up to 12 people may have died. president obama will visit arlington national cemetery today. welcome to all the veterans watching today on this veterans day. >> we have congressman elect jeffreys, a democrat from brooklyn. a professor at the school for social network. author of unintended consequences. a former partner at bain capital and molly, a reporter for a magazine who did phenomenal work. tuesday's election brought us not just a second term for president obama but a new congress as well. there are two ways to look at the make up of the congress. one is the endorsement of the status quo. asking the two to work together as house speaker john boehner put it the day after the election. >> the american people have spoken. they reelected president obama. they have again reelected a republican majority in the house of representatives. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. >> the other way to interpret the results is to see them as a
firepower. >> though you're unlikely to hear the current incarnation of president obama articulate this point of view, it's sound analysis. what message is the israeli government and u.s. government that supports it sending when it makes choices that result in hamas being able to point to their victories and leaves president mahmoud abbas totally impotent. here's the lesson, as far as i can tell, if you recognize israel if you're committed to nonviolence you'll get roled, marginalized, undercut and left looking like a loser. if you fire rockets into the heart of israel, kidnap their soldiers, they'll negotiate and adjust their policies. everyone i've talked to on the palestinian side sees this disparity. none other than hamas political leader explicitly cited abbas's sorry situation in an interview on wednesday. >> translator: mahmoud abbas gave this opportunity to israel and the international community. what did they do? they made him fail, they let him down. >> in allowing this to continue, in refusing to pressure the israeli government to take concrete steps towards peace in the
barack obama articulate this. i think it's sound analysis. the question is, what message is the israeli government and support sending when it makes choices in hamas pointing to many victories and leaves abbas humiliated as feckless and failed. here is the lesson, as far as i can tell. if you recognize israel, if you are committed to it, if you fire rockets into the heart of israel, if you kidnap their soldiers, then they will negotiate and adjust their policies. how perverse is that? everyone i have talked to sees this disparity. hamas political leader explicitly cited the sorry situation on wednesday. >> abbas whom the world welcomed gave this opportune toy israel and the national community. what did they do? they made him fail. >> allowing it to continue and take concrete steps in the west bank, stopping settlement growth, they are turning a blind eye and turning a blind eye while unarmed people are imprisoned, tear gassed away from the eyes of the american cameras. we, in the u.s., are creating the conditions of terrorism bring strategic benefits while the path of non-violence leads
to president obama on what he calls gifts the president had given to core democratic constituencies like students, women, and latinos. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> just note that, you know, doesn't actually cost any money but side point. romney's framing of the president's campaign strategy is, of course, offensive but it is also not entirely inaccurate. the president did, indeed, deliver on some of the major policy priorities of those core democratic constituencies. mandatory insurance coverage for birth control, making student loans more affordable, and deferring action, as i said on young, undocumented immigrants among other things. romney calls those gifts, and in many cases a majority of americans would call them good policy. what republicans seem to be picking up on is key components of the president's coalition exerted considerable leverage over the white house during the presidential
. here's barack obama in 2007 talking about how he sees -- he's not talking about amazon, talking about walmart, but what he thinks are the issues with bigness of an enterprise like that. >> if there are workers who can't get the health care they need, who don't receive the wages they deserve, who are divided into two tiers, even when they do the same work, that's a threat to workers everywhere. and that matters to all of us. that's why what you're doing with walmart is so important. and that's why i was proud to join you in this effort on a call a few months back. i don't mind standing up for workers and letting walmart know they need to pay a decent wage and let folks organize. it isn't about attacking walmart, this is about demanding more responsibility from an extraordinarily profitable and successful company. it's about reminding that company that they have a stake in the communities where they set up shop. that the well being of their workers and other workers should matter to them, that opportunity and justice should factor in to their bottom line. that's not too much to ask for.
morning from new york. i'm chris hayes. as part of his trip through asia, president obama is holding a news conference in thailand. he spoke of the crisis in gaza where strikes hit two buildings in gaza city housing media outlets. we'll have more on that later in the show. first, my story of the week. the real scandal of the petraeus affair. all right. here is the background context to the seemingly unending string of revelations about his extramarital affair that i, and i am not going to front have been following with a mix of fascination and shame for the last week and a half. over the last decade, two trends conspired to reduce our privacy. first, there's technology. social media allowed us to share every detail of our lives intentionally and unintensely. the photo tagged on facebook, the wayward strike to reply to all button. you get the picture. we now leave a digital trail traced by anyone who buys access to it. this week, the obama campaign knew what tv shows the targeted voters watched. there's the massive explosion of the surveillance in the wake of 9/11. thanks to the petri
